Respond Ready Workplace

The number of people dying from a drug overdose is at an all-time high, and the main driver of these deaths is opioids. This crisis reaches employees in all industries and occupations, with workplace overdose deaths increasing by 536% since 2011 and now accounting for nearly 9% of all deaths on the job. 

Recent FDA approvals of naloxone nasal sprays for over-the-counter use give your workplace a new lifesaving tool to prevent these deaths. Naloxone is a drug that can temporarily stop many of the life-threatening effects of opioid overdose. Including naloxone in your workplace first aid kit or elsewhere onsite, and training employees to use it, is a critical component of emergency response to help save a life.

Through Respond Ready Workplace, NSC aims to reduce overdose deaths on worksites by increasing awareness of the value of naloxone and related training in workplaces.
